Linda Ronstadt – Heartbreak Kind lyrics

Written by Paul Kennerly, Marty Stuart
© Irving Music/ Little March Music/ Songs of Polygram Intl (Bmi)

Lying alone at night
Listen to the rain that's falling down
You're calling out your baby's name
Ah but she just ain't around
Sleep don't come at all
You can't ease a troubled mind
Yeah they call it love
Ah but it's the heartbreak kind

Rumors whispered low
There's been talk around the town
Phone don't ring no more
Friends they say don't come around
Suspicion running high
But she says everything's just fine
She tells you that it's love
Ah but it's the heartbreak kind

There's darkness all around
As the evening shadows fall
Time keeps dragging by
But she ain't coming home at all
You tell yourself she still cares
But pretty soon you're gonna find
You thought it was a lasting love
Ah but it's the heartbreak kind
You thought it was a lasting love
Ah but it's the heartbreak kind
